Abstract: The eumaeine lycaenid genus Margaritheclus, new genus, is described. The type species is Pseudolycaena danaus Felder and Felder, 1865. A lectotype for Pseudolycaena danaus Felder and Felder, 1865 is designated. Two additional species, both new to science, are placed in the genus: Margaritheclus belus sp. n. and M. dabrerus sp. n. The phylogenetic relationships of Margaritheclus are discussed. The genus Laothus Johnson, Kruse et Kroenlien, 1997 is the senior subjective synonym of Gibbossa Salazar, 2001, new synonym.
